The story in the Prague Daily Monitor compared the number of Czech holidays to the number of holidays in some other European countries. Here is the count:
While it looks like we are doing fairly well for holidays here in the
1 and 8 May are both holidays – if one falls on a weekend, so does the other. 5 and 6 July are both holidays – if they are on Saturday and Sunday, that is another two lost at once. Last Christmas, we lost the 24th and 25th of December as they were Saturday and Sunday, which means that we also lost the 1st of January. I am fairly certain that it is not possible for us to enjoy the benefit of all 13 public holidays in the same year.
